Alias’ Fifth Annual Arts & Flowers comes to W.O. Smith Music School

grandNashville’s Alias Chamber Ensemble is like a world-premiere-generating machine. Since its founding a dozen years ago, this adventurous group has premiered nearly 20 new works. Three of them were presented during the ensemble’s excellent spring concert last May.

The event that helps make all of Alias’ adventurousness and creativity possible is Arts & Flowers. The fifth annual fundraiser takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. this Saturday, July 19 at W.O. Smith Music School, 1125 8th Ave. South.

Members of Alias Chamber Ensemble will preview music from composer and violist Christopher Farrell’s Second String Quartet. The complete work will receive its official world premiere next season.

As always, some terrific art work will be on display. You can preview the art here. Tickets for Arts & Flowers are available here. For more details, click here.
